CCCS SCHOOL BREAKFAST PROGRAM 

To: Parents/Students of Crawford County Community Schools 

Breakfast is an important part and start to your child's day. Studies have shown that students who regularly consume a healthy breakfast are better focused on their studies, have better or improved test scores, and tend to pay better attention in class. 

Crawford County Community Schools proudly participate in the School Breakfast Program along with the National School Lunch Program. Breakfast and lunch are served at each of our school locations: 

Crawford County High School, Crawford County Middle School, Crawford County Elementary East, Crawford County Elementary South, Crawford County Elementary West 

If your child already participates in the Free and Reduced Meal Program for lunch they are qualified to receive breakfast at a free or reduced price. All students are welcome and encouraged to participate on a daily basis. 

The cost of breakfast is reduced $.30, paid $1.25.
The cost of lunch is reduced $.40, paid $2.30.

Daily breakfast menus include fruit and juice choices, variety of whole grain options, and various protein options according to each school's breakfast menu along with low fat/fat free milk varieties. All foods offered are in compliance with Federal, State and USDA guidelines. 

Sincerely, Sharlyn
Johnson Food Service Director

CHARGE POLICY 

The school nutrition program is an essential part of the education system and by providing good-tasting, affordable, nutritious meals in pleasant surroundings; we are supporting the learning environment and helping to teach students the value of good nutrition.

The Crawford County Community School Corporation Board of Trustees has an agreement with the Indiana State Department of Education to participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and accepts full responsibility for adhering to the federal and state guidelines and regulations pertaining to this program. The Board also accepts full responsibility for providing regular priced meals, as well as free and reduced priced meals for children qualifying under the guidelines identified by the NSLP. The Board recognizes that there is no legal requirement to allow students to charge meals; however, because the District participates in the NSLP, the Board approves the establishment of a system to allow a student to charge a meal.

Parents may access lunch account balances by checking Harmony online. Your child’s school can provide you with the logon information. Parents may also call their child’s school and request account balances.

The District strongly discourages the charging of meals but understands that an occasional emergency may occur. Parents shall be notified of any negative balance and asked for prompt payment.

Crawford County Elementary Charge Policy

In the event a student has no money, or their account balance is insufficient, the student will be allowed up to two (2) days reimbursable meal charges which consist of one breakfast and one lunch each day. Parents of students will be notified when their child’s account reaches $10.00. These notices will be sent home with your child. A phone call will be made to elementary student’s parents when a child has an insufficient account balance and has charged a meal. Once a student has reached their charging limit of two (2) days reimbursable meal charges which consist of one breakfast and one lunch each day, they will be offered an alternate meal. The costs of the alternate meals are $.50 for breakfast and $1.00 for lunch.

Crawford County Middle and High School Charge Policy

A charge limit of $5.00 will be in effect at the middle and high school level. No snack or a-la-carte items shall be charged. Students will be told when their account balances are below $10.00. We will not send notices home or make phone calls for these students. Once a student has reached their charging limit, they will be offered an alternate meal. The cost of the alternate meal is $1.00 for lunch.

Effective at all schools

Adults are not allowed to charge meals and shall pay for such meals at the time of service or through pre-paid accounts. Absolutely no charging will be permitted during the month of May in order to bring all accounts current.
